2015 Aftermath project
The Grant Application for the 2015 Aftermath project is now open. Thanks once again to the generous support of the Foundation to Promote Open Society, we will be offering one $20,000 grant in 2015, and naming four finalists.
The application deadline is Monday, December 3, 2014. IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT FILING: Sadly, we have to revert to Dropbox for uploading applications. Filing via our website proved to be trickier than expected last year. Please be sure to read the application guidelines on the following page, which includes specific directions about filing on Dropbox. Applications that do not follow these directions will be not be considered in the judging.
We will announce the grant winner before Christmas. As always, applicants will be the first to know before we issue a general press release.
It’s been a tough year for so many people in this world. There are so many aftermaths to come. But it reminds me that post-conflict stories are more important than ever. I’ve often said that war all too often defines our inhumanity – and that the aftermath of conflict is where we define our humanity. And photographs do that, I believe, better than almost any other medium. They help us understand what it means
to be human.
So – we look forward to seeing your proposals this year, to the ways that you can help us all better understand our humanity. We need it.
